Angela had a friend who was friends with James on Myspace. This friend talked with James all the time while he was stationed in Iraq, and since Angela hung out with this particular friend, she introduced them, yes online, via Yahoo messenger. Angela and James began chatting with each other on a regular basis, just to have someone to talk to. After months of online conversations, flirtations and getting to know one another, James confessed that he was starting to really fall for Angela right before he was about to leave for Japan. Because they had yet to meet in person, they didn’t want to make anything official. It seemed like ages before they would ever meet. Angela would have to wait months and months until she would see or hear from him. They talked about everything under the sun before he finally came home. James drove all the way from Chicago to Dallas to visit Angela. Then, it was love at first sight. They knew they were meant to be together before they had even met face to face. It was the opportunity of learning about each other that they fell in love with. They still continue to make each other laugh all the time, which is really how it began. They constantly devote their love to each other and they understand what it means to not lose sight of what is important when they’re together.
James and Angela are currently enjoying being back in Texas. They dream of traveling and seeing the world. His family in England and South Africa will be their biggest thing outside of school and work. James plans on going to school, while Angela is continuing her dream of dancing at the dance department at Texas Women’s University and hopefully one day becoming a choreographer.
I wish them the best! I’m so happy I was able to document and be a part of their special day!
All Angela wanted was to see James in his dress blues at the end of the alter. He surprised her!
